CBS: Congratulations on the arrival of your daughter Addison Marie! How is she doing? And how are you adjusting to new motherhood?

DPS: “Addison is doing amazing – already sleeping through the night! Such a big girl. The past two months have just flown by. It’s like I blinked and she grew into a baby instead of a newborn. So crazy.

I am loving motherhood — it is seriously the best thing I have ever done with my life. I’m obsessed with her – I can’t stop staring at her or kissing her. Motherhood is such a blessing and I am so grateful to be experiencing this. The transition has been flawless. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I miss her so much even though she is just in the next room in her crib. The magnitude of the love I feel is so hard to put into words.”

CBS: How did you come up with Addison Marie’s name? Was it a tough decision for you and Stephen?

DPS: “Stephen and I loved the name Addison way before we were even thinking about getting pregnant. The name is just so beautiful and sophisticated. Her middle name, Marie, is passed down. It was my grandmother’s, my mother’s, and my middle name. It is something I wanted to share with my own daughter. I wanted her to know and have a piece of my mother.”

CBS: Tell us all about baby Addison’s beautiful nursery. What was the inspiration behind the soft pink and gray room? Have you always had a nursery like this in mind for your first child?

DPS: “Addison’s nursery is our favorite room in the house! When we were planning out her nursery, I knew I wanted to decorate it in soft pink and soft gray. The gray took some convincing with Stephen, but once he saw it, he loved it too. Choosing the bedding with Carousel Designs made it all complete. It was so easy when making the decision because we used their online tool. They had the perfect pink and gray chevron bedding that we just fell in love with. I found some vintage pieces of furniture that Stephen and I restored for her room that just fit perfectly.

CBS: What’s your favorite component/piece in the nursery?

DPS: “Speaking practically, I love her Poopoose changing pad. It is ‘mom invented’ which I love. The changing pad has a belt to strap Addison in so she doesn’t roll off and get hurt. I’m also a huge fan of my Bobee diaper dispenser. It makes storing diapers easy and stylish so I am not cluttering up Addison’s dresser or drawers with all the extra diapers.”
